About:

I hail from Genoa, Italy.

When I don't write about Magic, I write about film and television. In general, I write a lot.

When I play Magic, I usually play something with green in it. I don't know why I like green so much, I'm not even so concerned about the environment (but I'm concerned enough).

When I don't play Magic, I play things like X-Wing or Zombicide. But mostly I watch films and TV shows.

When I do things I don't like to do as much as playing games and watching films, I'm a freelance translator, editor, and proofreader. I also worked as head of programming for a couple film festivals.

I might have some mild OCD.

The Modern ban list is a maximum security prison with 34 inmates, some of which could potentially pose a serious threat to the meta. In this ongoing series, we're reviewing each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time it's the turn of the green storm enabler.

By Kumagoro (2019-03-27)

In each installment of the Inner Workings series, we'll examine a different Modern archetype to find out what makes it tick. This time, it's the turn of the most successful combo deck in the current meta, a unique strategy that the DCI bans have tried to keep in check since the very beginning of the format.
